Singapore Airlines will increase services between Singapore and Copenhagen

Singapore Airlines (SIA) will increase services between Singapore and Danish capital Copenhagen from current three weekly flights to five flights per week from 31 March 2013 (subject to airport slot availability). The announcement came after Competition Commission of Singapore (CCS) has cleared the joint venture between SIA and Scandinavian Airlines (SAS), the flag carrier of Denmark, Norway and Sweden, on November 1st.  The joint venture will mean joint operations for SIA and SAS including the co-ordination of flight schedules and joint sales activities.

“We are very pleased to announce an increase in frequency to Copenhagen now that regulatory approvals have been obtained for our wide-ranging partnership with SAS. We look forward to further building on our ties with SAS to provide more travel choices for our customers,” said Singapore Airlines Executive Vice President Commercial, Mr Mak Swee Wah.

Singapore Airlines and Scandinavian Airlines have been code-sharing since December 2010. SIA adds its code to SAS-operated flights beyond Copenhagen to Helsinki, Oslo and Stockholm, while SAS has been codesharing on SIA-operated flights between Copenhagen and Singapore, and on selected flights between Singapore and Bangkok. According to press release by Singapore Airlines, an expansion of codeshare ties is currently under discussion and new services between Singapore and Scandinavia will also be explored, subject to market conditions.

SIA will fly 5 times a week to Copenhagen from Singapore.
Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark, is a major regional center of culture, business, media, and science and has become the centre of the increasingly integrated Øresund Region,
